Hi, This is Roger at Unicycle dot com
Yes, I am the boss at Unicycle.com in the UK… I am also a unicyclist.
I have been part of the forum for a long time, hence the topic title. On the old forum it asked you to describe your unicycle ability, so I put in “Ok Unicyclist” and someone complained, so I changed it to “Mostly OKish Unicyclist”. I think it sums me up.
Unicycle Passion: I have been riding a unicycle in the late 70’s and by the mid 80’s I had modified a 24” Pashley and was using it off road. My interests in unicycles is broad. Although I am known for my Muni and road riding, I also love unicycle hockey and I have even competed in track racking and Freestyle at UNICON.
My road riding experience includes jointly holding the World Record for travelling for Lands End to John O’Groats in the UK and holding the fastest non geared time for 42km and 100km.
You may also find I will comment on Penny Farthings that come up in threads in the forum. I have been building and racing penny farthings since 2012 and have been the European champion several times.
Building/designing/selling unicycles: I trained as a product designer at Newcastle in the UK and used these skills to design and build the first Carbon Fibre unicycles in the 1990’s. This led onto becoming one of the founders of Unicycle.com in 1999 and designing all their unicycles since then. This includes, UDC, Club, Nimbus and Impact.
Unicycle.com is based in 14 countries around the world and is staffed by experts in unicycling.
